Listen closely…

You will not stay in close relationship for long, friend, if you don’t learn to hear the yearning not the whining. Most expressions of frustration, sadness, and anger are not the root emotion. Most humans when they communicate these feelings are deeply yearning for connection.

So, hear the yearning friend. Hear the yearning. You cannot hear when in a hurry to respond. As you master this skill of tuning in like an animal being stalked, you will be rewarded. Remember, the more you give the more, paradoxically, you will receive. It is more blessed to give than receive. Give the gift of hearing clearly those closest to you. You may be surprised what you hear when you listen closely.

Live hard. Love harder…
